Set 5, Ents of Fangorn (or EOF) is the second expansion of the Two Towers block, and the fifth set overall. It was released on July 2, 2003.

Themes and Mechanics[edit]

EOF continued introducing cards to support the strategies and cultures from TTT and BOHD, but also broke new ground in a number of small ways. Wraiths (not Ringwraiths) were introduced to the Culture Sauron.svg Sauron culture, as were Trolls. Neither of those first attempts ended up more than novelties, but later in King Block the Culture Sauron.svg Sauron Troll Swarm would being to be a thing of terror.

Ents completed their arc, and for the first time had companions released that were not hampered by the Unhasty keyword.

Culture Ringwraith.svg Ringwraith makes their first showing in Towers Block, including a very important cycling staple in the form of Fell Beast (6U83) .

The Balrog also makes his final Movie Block appearance, in a form that is no longer required to be played Underground.

Notable Cards[edit]

Starter Decks[edit]

This set continues the experiment begun in Battle of Helm's Deep, where the 3 random Rare cards that normally came in a Starter Deck are replaced with fixed Alternate Image "rares" which thematically suited the deck. This was the last set that followed this pattern, and with The Return of the King random rares would be restored to the starter decks once more.

The Witch-king Starter is notable for being the first starter deck themed around a Shadow premium card.
